Reparing the bamboo fences of the old tea house

I went to Yokohama Sankei-en Garden to see "ume" blossoms.  "Garyobai" (臥竜梅) have just begun to bloom.  The trunks of these trees look like a crawling dragon.

At Rengein (蓮華院) in the Inner Garden (内苑), a gardener was repairing the bamboo fence.  According to him, he repairs the fence once in about ten years, using "madake" (真竹) and "mosochiku" (孟宗竹) bamboos.

The part of the fence which had already finished repairing was very beautiful.
